As you know winter will be here soon....I got all there feed and bedding but should I be wanting to add more protein when winter sets on? Foods in general.

I gave mine extra protein & cracked corn couple of times a week to keep them warm during winter.

I feed oats as one of my scratch feeds as it has almost twice the protein as corn.

Chickens use calories to create heat.

 

Corn is a good source of inexpensive calories.

 

Many will give them a treat of extra corn before nightfall to add to the caloric intake while sleeping.

 

Personally, I don't.

 

I don't do anything differently, I always allow food upon demand.
